Sometimes, life knocks you down with a snowboard. Luckily for Canada, Meryeta O'Dine knows just what to do when that happens.

O'Dine was knocked to the snow in the final of the mixed snowboard cross event, when Italy's Caterina Carpano landed on the Canadian after flying off a jump.

Parrot said there were no hard feelings over McMorris' comments.

"He actually came to me earlier today and he apologized for his non-sportsmanship," Parrot said. "I told him no worries."
